Blind Hemmer

BarbWine | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Help!  I am considering purchasing a Blind Stitcher machine.  I am planning to retire soon and want to continue my sewing/embroidery/alteration business at home.  I do not know which one to purchase!  A local dealer is showing me a used Mercury blind hemmer.  He says the Baby Lock Blind Hemmer is not a good choice as it is too light and breaks down easily.  It has such a good instruction book, but I am concerned because of his comments about the edge finger breaking all the time, etc.

Any help anyone can give will be appreciated.  If anyone has one for their small business-how often do you use it?

      I have a blind hemmer (just like the Babylock) and it's more of a household machine, mine is pretty new so I wouldn't know if it breaks. It is a small machine and I couldn't imagine doing anything real heavy duty on it. For garment hems it's wonderful and I do like it. Did you get to test both machines to see what the differences are. Good Luck!
